اَلْخُرُوجُ 8

قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «ٱدْخُلْ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ وَقُلْ لَهُ: هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ: أَطْلِقْ شَعْبِي لِيَعْبُدُونِي. ١ 1
Then Yahweh spoke to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and tell him, 'Yahweh says this: “Let my people go so that they may worship me.
وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَأْبَى أَنْ تُطْلِقَهُمْ فَهَا أَنَا أَضْرِبُ جَمِيعَ تُخُومِكَ بِٱلضَّفَادِعِ. ٢ 2
If you refuse to let them go, I will afflict all your country with frogs.
فَيَفِيضُ ٱلنَّهْرُ ضَفَادِعَ. فَتَصْعَدُ وَتَدْخُلُ إِلَى بَيْتِكَ وَإِلَى مِخْدَعِ فِرَاشِكَ وَعَلَى سَرِيرِكَ وَإِلَى بُيُوتِ عَبِيدِكَ وَعَلَى شَعْبِكَ وَإِلَى تَنَانِيرِكَ وَإِلَى مَعَاجِنِكَ. ٣ 3
The river will swarm with frogs. They will come up and go into your house, your bedroom, and your bed. They will go into your servants' houses. They will go onto your people, into your ovens, and into your kneading bowls.
عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَى شَعْبِكَ وَعَبِيدِكَ تَصْعَدُ ٱلضَّفَادِعُ». ٤ 4
The frogs will attack you, your people, and all your servants.”'”
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «قُلْ لِهَارُونَ: مُدَّ يَدَكَ بِعَصَاكَ عَلَى ٱلْأَنْهَارِ وَٱلسَّوَاقِي وَٱلْآجَامِ، وَأَصْعِدِ ٱلضَّفَادِعَ عَلَى أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ٥ 5
Yahweh said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, 'Reach out with your hand and your staff over the rivers, the streams, and the pools, and bring the frogs up over the land of Egypt.'”
فَمَدَّ هَارُونُ يَدَهُ عَلَى مِيَاهِ مِصْرَ، فَصَعِدَتِ ٱلضَّفَادِعُ وَغَطَّتْ أَرْضَ مِصْرَ. ٦ 6
Aaron reached out with his hand over Egypt's waters, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.
وَفَعَلَ كَذَلِكَ ٱلْعَرَّافُونَ بِسِحْرِهِمْ وَأَصْعَدُوا ٱلضَّفَادِعَ عَلَى أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٧ 7
But the magicians did the same with their magic; they brought up frogs over the land of Egypt.
فَدَعَا فِرْعَوْنُ مُوسَى وَهَارُونَ وَقَالَ: «صَلِّيَا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ لِيَرْفَعَ ٱلضَّفَادِعَ عَنِّي وَعَنْ شَعْبِي فَأُطْلِقَ ٱلشَّعْبَ لِيَذْبَحُوا لِلرَّبِّ». ٨ 8
Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron and said, “Pray to Yahweh for him to take away the frogs from me and my people. Then I will let the people go, that they may sacrifice to him.”
فَقَالَ مُوسَى لِفِرْعَوْنَ: «عَيِّنْ لِي مَتَى أُصَلِّي لِأَجْلِكَ وَلِأَجْلِ عَبِيدِكَ وَشَعْبِكَ لِقَطْعِ ٱلضَّفَادِعِ عَنْكَ وَعَنْ بُيُوتِكَ. وَلَكِنَّهَا تَبْقَى فِي ٱلنَّهْرِ». ٩ 9
Moses said to Pharaoh, “You can have the privilege of telling me when I should pray for you, your servants, and your people, so that the frogs may be removed from you and your houses and stay only in the river.”
فَقَالَ: «غَدًا». فَقَالَ: «كَقَوْلِكَ. لِكَيْ تَعْرِفَ أَنْ لَيْسَ مِثْلُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا. ١٠ 10
Pharaoh said, “Tomorrow.” Moses said, “Let it be as you say, so that you may know that there is no one like Yahweh, our God.
فَتَرْتَفِعُ ٱلضَّفَادِعُ عَنْكَ وَعَنْ بُيُوتِكَ وَعَبِيدِكَ وَشَعْبِكَ، وَلَكِنَّهَا تَبْقَى فِي ٱلنَّهْرِ». ١١ 11
The frogs will go from you, your houses, your servants, and your people. They will stay only in the river.”
ثُمَّ خَرَجَ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ مِنْ لَدُنْ فِرْعَوْنَ، وَصَرَخَ مُوسَى إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلضَّفَادِعِ ٱلَّتِي جَعَلَهَا عَلَى فِرْعَوْنَ، ١٢ 12
Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh. Then Moses cried out to Yahweh concerning the frogs that he had brought on Pharaoh.
فَفَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَقَوْلِ مُوسَى. فَمَاتَتِ ٱلضَّفَادِعُ مِنَ ٱلْبُيُوتِ وَٱلدُّورِ وَٱلْحُقُولِ. ١٣ 13
Yahweh did as Moses asked: The frogs died in the houses, courts, and fields.
وَجَمَعُوهَا كُوَمًا كَثِيرَةً حَتَّى أَنْتَنَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ. ١٤ 14
The people gathered them together in heaps, and the land stank.
فَلَمَّا رَأَى فِرْعَوْنُ أَنَّهُ قَدْ حَصَلَ ٱلْفَرَجُ أَغْلَظَ قَلْبَهُ وَلَمْ يَسْمَعْ لَهُمَا، كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٥ 15
But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and did not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as Yahweh had said that he would do.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «قُلْ لِهَارُونَ: مُدَّ عَصَاكَ وَٱضْرِبْ تُرَابَ ٱلْأَرْضِ لِيَصِيرَ بَعُوضًا فِي جَمِيعِ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ١٦ 16
Yahweh said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, 'Reach out with your staff and strike the dust on the ground, that it may become gnats throughout all the land of Egypt.'”
فَفَعَلَا كَذَلِكَ. مَدَّ هَارُونُ يَدَهُ بِعَصَاهُ وَضَرَبَ تُرَابَ ٱلْأَرْضِ، فَصَارَ ٱلْبَعُوضُ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَعَلَى ٱلْبَهَائِمِ. كُلُّ تُرَابِ ٱلْأَرْضِ صَارَ بَعُوضًا فِي جَمِيعِ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ١٧ 17
They did so: Aaron reached out with his hand and his staff. He struck the dust on the ground. Gnats came onto man and beast. All the dust on the ground became gnats throughout the whole land of Egypt.
وَفَعَلَ كَذَلِكَ ٱلْعَرَّافُونَ بِسِحْرِهِمْ لِيُخْرِجُوا ٱلْبَعُوضَ فَلَمْ يَسْتَطِيعُوا. وَكَانَ ٱلْبَعُوضُ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَعَلَى ٱلْبَهَائِمِ. ١٨ 18
The magicians tried with their magic to produce gnats, but they could not. There were gnats on man and beast.
فَقَالَ ٱلْعَرَّافُونَ لِفِرْعَوْنَ: «هَذَا إِصْبَعُ ٱللهِ». وَلَكِنِ ٱشْتَدَّ قَلْبُ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يَسْمَعْ لَهُمَا، كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٩ 19
Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” But Pharaoh's heart was hardened, so he refused to listen to them. It was just as Yahweh had said Pharaoh would do.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «بَكِّرْ فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ وَقِفْ أَمَامَ فِرْعَوْنَ. إِنَّهُ يَخْرُجُ إِلَى ٱلْمَاءِ. وَقُلْ لَهُ: هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ: أَطْلِقْ شَعْبِي لِيَعْبُدُونِي. ٢٠ 20
Yahweh said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning and stand in front of Pharaoh as he goes out to the river. Say to him, 'Yahweh says this: “Let my people go so that they may worship me.
فَإِنَّهُ إِنْ كُنْتَ لَا تُطْلِقُ شَعْبِي، هَا أَنَا أُرْسِلُ عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَى عَبِيدِكَ وَعَلَى شَعْبِكَ وَعَلَى بُيُوتِكَ ٱلذُّبَّانَ، فَتَمْتَلِئُ بُيُوتُ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ ذُبَّانًا. وَأَيْضًا ٱلْأَرْضُ ٱلَّتِي هُمْ عَلَيْهَا. ٢١ 21
But if you do not let my people go, I will send swarms of flies on you, your servants, and your people, and into your houses. The Egyptians' houses will be full of swarms of flies, and even the ground on which they stand will be full of flies.
وَلَكِنْ أُمَيِّزُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ أَرْضَ جَاسَانَ حَيْثُ شَعْبِي مُقِيمٌ حَتَّى لَا يَكُونُ هُنَاكَ ذُبَّانٌ. لِكَيْ تَعْلَمَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢٢ 22
But on that day I will treat the land of Goshen differently, the land in which my people are living, so that no swarms of flies will be there. This will happen so that you may know that I am Yahweh in the midst of this land.
وَأَجْعَلُ فَرْقًا بَيْنَ شَعْبِي وَشَعْبِكَ. غَدًا تَكُونُ هَذِهِ ٱلْآيَةُ». ٢٣ 23
I will make a distinction between my people and your people. This sign of my power will take place tomorrow.”'”
فَفَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ هَكَذَا، فَدَخَلَتْ ذُبَّانٌ كَثِيرَةٌ إِلَى بَيْتِ فِرْعَوْنَ وَبُيُوتِ عَبِيدِهِ. وَفِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ خَرِبَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ مِنَ ٱلذُّبَّانِ. ٢٤ 24
Yahweh did so, and thick swarms of flies came into Pharaoh's house and into his servants' houses. Throughout the whole land of Egypt, the land was ruined because of the swarms of flies.
فَدَعَا فِرْعَوْنُ مُوسَى وَهَارُونَ وَقَالَ: «ٱذْهَبُوا ٱذْبَحُوا لِإِلَهِكُمْ فِي هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٢٥ 25
Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron and said, “Go, sacrifice to your God in our own land.”
فَقَالَ مُوسَى: «لَا يَصْلَحُ أَنْ نَفْعَلَ هَكَذَا، لِأَنَّنَا إِنَّمَا نَذْبَحُ رِجْسَ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا. إِنْ ذَبَحْنَا رِجْسَ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ أَمَامَ عُيُونِهِمْ أَفَلَا يَرْجُمُونَنَا؟ ٢٦ 26
Moses said, “It is not right for us to do so, for the sacrifices we make to Yahweh our God are something disgusting to the Egyptians. If we make sacrifices right before their eyes that are disgusting to the Egyptians, will they not stone us?
نَذْهَبُ سَفَرَ ثَلَاثَةِ أَيَّامٍ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ وَنَذْبَحُ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا كَمَا يَقُولُ لَنَا». ٢٧ 27
No, it is a three days' journey into the wilderness that we must make, in order to sacrifice to Yahweh our God, as he commands us.”
فَقَالَ فِرْعَوْنُ: «أَنَا أُطْلِقُكُمْ لِتَذْبَحُوا لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ، وَلَكِنْ لَا تَذْهَبُوا بَعِيدًا. صَلِّيَا لِأَجْلِي». ٢٨ 28
Pharaoh said, “I will allow you to go and sacrifice to Yahweh your God in the wilderness. Only you must not go very far away. Pray for me.”
فَقَالَ مُوسَى: «هَا أَنَا أَخْرُجُ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ وَأُصَلِّي إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، فَتَرْتَفِعُ ٱلذُّبَّانُ عَنْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَبِيدِهِ وَشَعْبِهِ غَدًا. وَلَكِنْ لَا يَعُدْ فِرْعَوْنُ يُخَاتِلُ حَتَّى لَا يُطْلِقَ ٱلشَّعْبَ لِيَذْبَحَ لِلرَّبِّ». ٢٩ 29
Moses said, “As soon as I go out from you, I will pray to Yahweh that the swarms of flies may leave you, Pharaoh, and your servants and people tomorrow. But you must not deal deceitfully any more by not letting our people go to sacrifice to Yahweh.”
فَخَرَجَ مُوسَى مِنْ لَدُنْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَصَلَّى إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ. ٣٠ 30
Moses went out from Pharaoh and prayed to Yahweh.
فَفَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَقَوْلِ مُوسَى، فَٱرْتَفَعَ ٱلذُّبَّانُ عَنْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَبِيدِهِ وَشَعْبِهِ. لَمْ تَبْقَ وَاحِدَةٌ. ٣١ 31
Yahweh did as Moses asked; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, his servants, and his people. Not one remained.
وَلَكِنْ أَغْلَظَ فِرْعَوْنُ قَلْبَهُ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَرَّةَ أَيْضًا فَلَمْ يُطْلِقِ ٱلشَّعْبَ. ٣٢ 32
But Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he did not let the people go.
